Course: Computational Chemistry - MD Simulations, 2016-06-20

Computational Chemistry - MD Simulations

This one day course is an introduction to Computational Chemistry and MD Simulations, with half of the time dedicated to running GROMACS at HPC2N. There will be a hands-on. Bring your own protein/system if you have it, and want help with running it.

Topics that will be covered:

  • 08:30 Basics on Molecular Dynamics simulations:
    • Force Field
    • Ensembles
    • Beyond classical MD simulations: Accelerated MD, Umbrella Sampling, Coarse Graining, Alchemical method
  • 10:30 COFFEE BREAK
  • 11:00 Abisko intro + Brief talk about the new cluster
  • 11:45 LUNCH BREAK
  • 12:45 Using GROMACS at HPC2N
    • Setting up a simulation
    • Minimization
    • Solvation & Equilibration
    • Production run
    • Some analysis tools
  • 14:30 COFFEE BREAK
  • 14:45 Using GROMACS/Visualization tools (VMD) at HPC2N
  • 15:15  - 16:30  Hands-on

Participation is free.
